Ground

Visiting fans are normally allocated the lower tier of the East stand which runs along the side of the pitch and is a a gently shelving, uncovered area, situated below the home fans in the covered stand (watch out for the little darlings dropping cups of steaming hot coffee from the above stand as happened a couple of season ago). From memory, no views are obscured.

One of the odd things about Chelsea is the multi-gate system which means prior to kick off the conconcorse (which sells beer) is open to anyone, with or without a ticket (and home and away fans mix happily) , however after kick off a set of outter doors are locked and the turnstile door opened allowing people inside the ground access to them instead.

Travel

Chelsea is approached off the M25. Exit the M25 at junction 15 onto

the M4 and follow this as it runs into the A4. Staying on the A4 go over

the Hammersmith Flyover and travel a further 1.5 miles before turning

right down Warwick Road (A3220) past Earls Court. Follow this down

into Finborough Road and then at the junction with Fulham road turn

right. The ground is on the right.

There is an underground car park at the Chelsea Village and limited street

parking. Many visitors park at tube stations around outer London and catch

the tube in.

Pubs

Pretty much everything around the ground seems to be home fans only, leaving visiting fans to drink elsewhere in London. such as Rovers favourite, The 8 Bells at Putney Bridge.

Police, Stewards, Fans

It has to be said that the last few season have brought some very negative reports of all three, including stewards throwing somebody out for standing up to take a mobile out of their pocket, police hospitalizing a Rovers fan after pushing him down the stairs whilst exiting the grounds and fans thowing random punches at Rovers fans in replica shirts.
